Photo: Ice Climber Frozen Waterfall

Inching their way up the frozen waterfall, a climber leans against the sheet of pure ice which was once the free flowing Upper Falls of Johnston Creek.

With ice pick in hand and crampons digging into the solid ice, a climber while tethered by a rope, chooses her next anchor point as she makes her way up the frozen waterfall.

The Upper Falls of Johnston Creek in the Canadian Rocky Mountains are a popular place for climbers as the waterfall becomes a solid block of ice during the winter months and offers a great challenge to a climber. Frozen in time, the ice takes on a blue appearance as winter progresses and the ice compresses.
